Submission + - Lawrence O'Donnell Encourages You to Vote Third Party (msnbc.com)

wiegeabo writes: Politcal analyst, and MSNBC host, Lawrence O'Donnell covered the recent 3rd party Presidential Debate on his show "The Last Word". While showing clips from the debate about topics not covered in the main debates, O'Donnell discusses a few of the issues brought up including the drug war and the NDAA. He also discusses the media's bias towards coverage of only the two main parties, how the candidates only focus on key swing states, 'wasting votes', and the connection to low voter turn out.

Especially poignant is his comment, " I have actually voted for the winner of the presidency exactly once, so please don’t try to tell me that voting for a candidate who loses is wasting a vote in a democracy."
